Aeron Hockey is an evolution of “office hockey” played with a puck and makeshift stick. It is played on a purpose-built indoor court, with players seated on iconic Herman Miller Aeron chairs. Five players a side equipped with a puck and hockey sticks compete for the lead on the scoreboard.

After many hard fought matches team DHL emerged champions, walking away with 5 Aeron chairs worth one million rupees and the champions’ trophy. Philip Weerasinghe Associates (PWA) became the first runner up followed by the British council as the second runners up of the tournament.

The tournament was organized to show case the unique functionalities of the chair and brand targeting its direct and indirect customer base amongst the top corporates and design firms in Sri Lanka. The tournament received phenomenal response and enthusiasm both on ground and on social media.

Aeron chair’s functionality showcases a distinctive look which invites to sit and experience the chair. From the transparency of the Pellicle suspension to the chair’s curvilinearity, Aeron was designed around people, creating an aesthetic all its own. Every material and mechanism on Aeron advances the art and science of seating. As the first office chair in which fabric and foam were replaced with a breathable, woven suspension membrane—with its innovative Pellicle seat and back—Aeron distributes the body weight evenly, eliminating pressure points and heat buildup.
